Let's take a Look at Leadership Under The Hood...

They say some individuals are simply "Born Leaders." As a kid, my mom and many other people used to tell me that I was a "natural born leader." The way my mother tells it, I was 7 in Girl Scouts and she came to watch a production that the Scouts put on. She asked the mother in control at the end of the production just how it was put together and she said, "Heidi have written it, directed in it and starred in it." My proud mother immediately proclaimed, "she's a born leader."

Despite my mom's urban legend, I simply don't believe that people are really born leaders. True leadership requires an intense understanding of exactly what others need, want and envision - we are simply not born with this cognitive ability. However I DO think that there are lots of leaders in our everyday lives, individuals which we may not identify as leaders, but their leadership is obviously present.

John Quincy Adams once said, "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."

Who does this make you think of?

I think of a Parent.

Our children do not know what they really want as infants, we pave the way of Possibility in front of them to inspire them to DREAM. We provide them the resources to go to school and train them at home so they continually LEARN. We inspire our children to always DO more. We encourage our children to BECOME all that they can be. The Leadership Role we have as parents within our homes is more significant than any other role we play.

In searching for a leader in the MLM business I look for people who exemplify what books by John Maxwell said,

"Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them."

Personally, I want a leader who has walked in my shoes, was battling to attain fame and can bask with me in the glory of my accomplishment. The characteristics of good leaders I have experienced at Numis Network are people who inspire me, relate to me and encourage me.

It's not about being born a leader, it's really about Seeing It, Believing It, and Walking the walk, Talking the talk, and Leading the Team down the Road into its Future. A Very Bright Future!

Until the Next Time

Scott & Heidi
